The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in its final rule for the physician fee schedule for 2011 has published their decision to cut the Relative Value Units (RVUs) for physician work for code 64483, on interim basis, from 1.90 RVUs to 1.75 RVUs.

ISIS strongly objects to this determination and a comment letter was submitted to CMS during a public comment period. This decision ignores the AMA RUC recommendation for value and is completely arbitrary. To review the comment letter see the attached pdf.
